Animality @ Marian Goodman Gallery / until 17th December 2017

The very earliest cave paintings reveal that humans have cohabitated with animals for millennia. Yet the relationship is fraught and contradictory: we simultaneously mythologize, venerate, sacrifice, and exploit those who are not of our species. This paradox suggests that our connection with animals might be more complicated, and far richer, than commonly thought, and that the distinction between human and animal is not at all clear-cut.

If animals have been the protagonists of innumerable myths, subject to countless scientific studies, and featured in some of our most extraordinary works of art and literature, why have they not been more central to the way we humans study our own relation to the world?

Taking this question as its premise, Animality lays down a novel artistic and theoretical framework for interrogating our relationship to animals. It proposes six interrelated themes—Origins, Markings, Crossings, Variations, Traces, Extinctions—and involves more than seventy participants, mostly from the discipline of art but also from film, literature, philosophy, and science. Its spirited structure juxtaposes artworks and artifacts new and old, high and low, allowing relationships between art and non-art materials to emerge, and creating links between historical and contemporary social and political realities.

While in large part playful and humorous, Animality also stresses the importance of addressing ethical issues, and thinking beyond one’s own values and beliefs, to question accepted assumptions about our relationship to nonhuman creatures. It suggests that while many distinctions between humans and animals are valid, the two groups are more productively imagined as parts of an ontological whole.

Animality connects to a larger debate around the so-called animal question that has involved such iconic thinkers as Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger, Georges Bataille, Emmanuel Levinas, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, Jacques Derrida, and Michel Foucault. Their interrogations around the relationship between animals and humans have inspired a growing contemporary discourse. Animality is conceived in part as a visual contribution to that conversation while also paying, of course, tribute to the diversity and beauty of the animal kingdom.

Free entry

www.vam.ac.uk/moc/exhibitions/gameplan

Are you a Scrabble Champion?

A wannabee Chess grandmaster?

Or a Monopoly megalomaniac?

Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered will celebrate the joy, excitement and occasional frustration of playing board games. This will exhibition include some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A’s outstanding national collection of board games.

Alongside current family favourites such as Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit, and traditional games like chess, the exhibition looks at historical board games including The Game of the Goose and other beautifully designed games from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Board games are played by everyone, young and old. They have a universal appeal that transcends cultural and language barriers. They can both teach and entertain us. The playing of board games is embedded into our culture, not just the games themselves but the act of playing, the interaction with family and friends, the lessons to be learned and the fun to be had.

The exhibition will include more than 100 objects, featuring games from around the world, and explores the important role of design. Throughout the exhibition, selected games of special interest are highlighted with more detailed information on their history and influence.

Hands-on interactives and the opportunity to become part of one big interactive game will direct visitors around the exhibition, and invite them to think about game playing experiences and what sort of player they are.

There is a rattle and hiss as a Subway train hurtles by, the painted metal a riot of colour – a speeding canvas for guerilla artists against the smoking cityscape. This is The Big Apple 1977 and the city is on fire.

In the Bronx, a new kind of hybrid music – a DIY collage of looped Funk and Disco breaks that will one day dominate the sonic landscape – is being born on street corners and in makeshift dance halls. They call it Hip Hop.

In Central Manhattan the lights of Broadway shine down on the throngs clamouring outside Studio 54, as inside Warhol gets down with Grace Jones, and the stars swing from the mirror balls and dance, ankle deep, in glitter.

The word is out – there’s a block party in Harlem tonight, and you jump the barriers and head Uptown. You get off at 125th street, the bass making the pavement beneath your feet shudder as you head towards the sound. There’s electricity in the air tonight and the streets themselves feel alive – because this the city that never sleeps, where the party never stops and the night is always young.

Visit this winter as we turn our rooftop space in Brixton into a scene from New York in the 1970s; drawing inspiration from iconic venues such as Studio 54 and the Harlem Apollo we are taking you across the pond and back in time with a selection of themed bars, a night club, private rooms and New York inspired street food.

  • Le Freak (night club) glittering mirror ball playground, inspired by the legendary Studio 54
  • Brixton Apollo (bar / club) art deco homage to Harlem’s iconic Apollo Theatre: ‘Where stars are born and legends are made’
  • Club Rapture (bar) punk rock palace – The grubby jewell in the crown of the Lower Eastside scene
  • Coldharbour Cafe (bar) prop up the counter of a quintessential New York diner

Free entry!

www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/exhibition/rachel-maclean-wot-u-about

Rachel Maclean is a Glasgow-based multi-media artist who creates artificial visions using green-screen technology. Within her fantastical settings Maclean parodies fairy tales, children’s television programmes, beauty product advertising, internet videos, and pop culture playing all the extravagantly costumed characters herself. At once seductive and nightmarish, glossy and grotesque, her films destabilise power dynamics and consumer desires.

Curated by Elsa Coustou, Assistant Curator, Contemporary British Art. Maclean’s new film work, It’s What’s Inside That Counts (2016), has been commissioned by HOME, Manchester. The film has been created in partnership with HOME, Manchester, the University of Salford Art Collection, Artpace San Antonio, Zabludowicz Collection, Tate, Frieze Film and Channel 4 Random Acts. The exhibition has been created in partnership with HOME, Manchester.
